AJ Hoggard led a balanced attack with 14 points and dealt three assists as Archbishop Carroll closed out the Catholic League boys basketball regular season in dominant fashion Sunday afternoon, rolling to a 68-45 victory at Conwell-Egan.
Colin Daly added a dozen points, Khari Williams contributed 10 points and five rebounds, Justin Anderson checked in with eight points and five boards, and Jesse McPherson was a force in the paint — grabbing seven rebounds and blocking six shots to go along with his six points.
The Patriots (15-7 overall, 7-6 league) will open the PCL playoffs as the No. 7 seed Wednesday when they host No. 10 seed La Salle.
Bonner & Prendergast 74, Cardinal O’Hara 47 >> Justin Gans scored 16, Tymir Cooper netted 13 and Dylan Higgins and Ajiri Johnson added 10 points apiece as the Friars prepped for postseason play with an impressive performance.
Jaye’lyn Peebles led all scorers with 17 points for O’Hara, but it’s Bonner — as the No 8 seed — that will host Wednesday night’s Catholic League opening-round clash with No. 9 seed Conwell-Egan.
